After (many!) months of sitting on this good news, I’m thrilled to reveal the cover of COMING OF AGE: 13 B’NAI MITZVAH STORIES!!!
Edited by Jonathan Rosen and Henry Herz, this Jewish MG anthology, published by Albert Whitman & Co. on March 1, 2022, includes stories from 13 Jewish authors, including yours truly. (My story is called “Grandma Merle’s Last Wish,” and I hope you will enjoy it!)
Here’s a blurb from Goodreads:
“What does it mean to become an adult in your faith? Join thirteen diverse characters as they experience anxiety, doubt, and self-discovery while preparing for their b’nai mitzvah. And whether celebrating with a lavish party or in a reception room with an accordion player, the Jewish rite of passage remains the same. Filled with humor, hope, and history, there’s something in this anthology for every reader, regardless of their faith.”
